Coin Rush is a fun and accessible game mode in New Super Mario Bros. 2 where players can enjoy collecting as many coins as possible. As you only have one life, you must race across three courses with care - but be quick as well, as the time left at the end of the course is transferred into coins. In these add-on content packs the courses are set so you can have fun playing them again and again to try and grab as many coins as you can. Your scores for Coin Rush can also be shared with other players via StreetPass, allowing you to challenge your friends and see whose records are the highest.
The Gold Classics pack is available so that every New Super Mario Bros. 2 player can enjoy the experience of collecting lots of coins.
